Jay Bruce Is The Next WHO?

In baseball circles, the name “Kevin Maas” is legend, representative of a highly touted player who bursts onto the scene and fizzles out just quickly.  Joe Charbonneau pulled a Maas; so did Bob Hamelin, I’m inclined to say without looking at his numbers.

But this, people…this is just naked aggression toward the man who remains our hero despite having been in the major leagues and theoretically off our radar for a month. 

Jay, what do you think of the fact that somebody dared even suggest that you and Kevin Maas might have a connection:

Yeah, can’t say I blame you.  Nothing less than mild outrage is to be expected here.

Fortunately the blog post writer came to a very important conclusion: Jay Bruce does NOT equal Kevin Maas.  Thank God.

  1. I still lived in the KC area when Hamelin came in, and that was definitely a cruel joke played on us soon-to-be long-suffering fans. They had us calling him “The Hammer” and he won ROY and then… nothing.

  2. Or Shane Spencer.

    Spencer in 1998: 25 for 67 (.373); 10 HR, 27 RBI, .411 OBP, .910 SLG.

    Bruce through June 13: 26 for 68 (.382); 4 HR, 12 RBI, .468 OBP, .632 SLG.

  3. Will,

    Your comment actually made me shudder. I had to read it twice just to make sure I understood it.

    If you’ll excuse me, I need to go pray at the altar I’ve set up to honor Jay Bruce. He needs my help.
